“Coyaba be better, but it's ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks in May 2012. It's taken a while to write the review but somethng tells me that not a lot would have changd since then. It's a shame as I expcted there to be more to Grenada. Unfortunately, it seems that this caribbean islands view of relaxed is more annoying than chilled out.
My first impression was not a good one - and my boyfriend could sense it immediately. Yes the grounds were stunning, gardens well manicured and the hotel buildings were cool and white - BUT the thumping heavy reggae base music from the public playing field across the road was not the best start to what was supposed to be a relaxing holiday. We might as well have been staying on a carnival float! My first question was if there was another room available further away but there wasn't, and we were assured that it was a weekend occurrance. Thankfully, it did stop.

The hotel and staff were very nice and nothing was ever too much for them but it all seemed a little inexperianced and average. The gardens of the hotel were impeccable and the gardeners are friendly and knowledgeable. The staff at the restaurants and bars pay alot of attention to you to make sure you are happy, although it does sometimes feel like you have to make the effort for attention when you first get there. We alternated nights at the hotel restaurants. Both were fine and food was tasty and plentiful but it's such a shame that there wasn't really anywhere outside that was close enough or felt safe enough to venture out to. I guess we could've gone to the KFC over the road...Don't misunderstand me - the food is lovely but a bit repetative after the first week.

The hotel was right on Grand Anse Beach and this is stunning but certainly not the nicest beach I've been on. We wanted a little more exclusivity and Grand Anse just doesn't offer that. It is clean, white sands and clean water but it can get busy. The weekends were packed out with American college students and it feels like American Pie - The Caribbean Vacation. Beer pong, suncream and obnoixious teenagers. The hotel has complementary equipment so we went sailing and canoeing almost daily inbetween sunning and reading. You are accosted daily and almost forced to make a deal with the local beach sellers just to get some peace and quiet. In the evening we wanted to go for a walk after dinner but it just didn't feel safe after sunset. I haven't felt like that before on holiday and it was saddening.Most locals are friendly but I felt intimidated on my own.

You can get a bus to most areas on the island, which is what we did. And it's cheap! We prefer to be independant and don't like tour guides. We visited the main market area but to be honest, when you've seen one nutmeg and spice stall you've seen them all. When you get off at the main bus station be careful as it's really busy. As we got off the bus we somehow managed to pick up a local tour guide who, give him credit, is very good at his job, as we didn't even realise we were being scammed! He just walked alongside us and started a conversation. Next thing we know we were were obliged to buy a spice rack thingy in a coconut shell from his aunties stall.The thing is, my boyfriend is 6'7 and 18 stone and we're both savvy but we felt like we couldn't tell him to leave us alone without landing ourselves in trouble. We kept dropping hints but you just have to be upront and say that you want to go it on your own, thanks and good bye. We walked to the top of the capital to take in the view but there is nothing else. There are other excursions that i've reviewed on T.A.

In a nutmeg nutshell - The hotel is clean and pretty and the staff are really helpful and nice but inexperianced. There is definitely room for modernisation and refurbishment. Hotel rooms are cleaned daily but furnishings and the bathroom definetly need an update. The showers aren't very good. The hotel beautiful gardens lead onto the beach and there are fresh clean beach towels with a little walk to the hotel bar for an endless supply of pina coladas and every other drink including beers/pop/juices/water etc. We practically survived on the pina coladas during the day. Non alcoholic as the sun is lovely and hot. And perfectly rummed up during the sunset. The best evening entertainment is the steel pan band that visit the hotel and the best barman is Stanley. Just ask for a 'Highway' cocktail but be warned! They're strong.
The hotel is lovely but I feel like other aspects of the holiday let it down. I reckon if you return to Grenada after a few more years of tourism then they would've stepped up their game. It doesn't feel ready just yet.

Room Tip: As far away from reception as possible so that you can't hear the street noises. The rooms are t...

We stayed for 2 weeks in December, food first of all was average, but we ate from the a la carte menu. When we tried the daily specials menu, it was much better, good enough we never ate anywhere else. Breakfast is good, but choice is very very limited, and they never change it. Service was very friendly, but they tend to forget things, and you have to remind them. Location is outside of St Georges, you need to take a local minibus to get into town which takes 10 to 15 mins and is 1 US$ per person. There is a small shopping mall opposite the hotel, and a couple of restaurants nearby which we never tried. Room was a generous size and clean, but not very luxurious.

This was our second visit to this hotel. We first went in June 2011 and went back again in November 2012. It hasn't changed. It is still just as good and this time, as it was peak season, the second restaurant was open which gave you the opportunity to dress up or dress down for dinner.

Our main draw for coming back was visit Eco Dive & Trek, the onsite diving club. Christie and her team were brilliant (again) and we really enjoyed our stay. Will definitely go back!

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms have loungers and chairs so you don't have sunbathe by the pool/beach. Y...

We came to Coyaba for a couple of reasons, firstly for the beautiful location and secondly to get married and take our honeymoon.

The wedding for us was a very simple small affair with just the two of us and Sandra (Guest Services) took care of all the arrangements and guided us through the process both before and during our stay, we had a wonderful experience and as such would highly recommend this as an option for others wanting to get married here.

The resort is advertised as being located on one of the 10 best beaches in the world and I have to say that I have no reason to doubt that, it is without question one of the most superb beaches on the Caribbean Sea.

The food at the restaurant for an all inclusive was great, we only ate out a handful of time in our 2 week stay as the variety and quality at the hotel met our expectations.

Word of advice....if you come here...relax...service is not the fastest but it is friendly, so remember you are on holiday so chill out ;-)

Rooms are well fitted with good air con, a fridge and a safe etc. lovely balcony views and very peaceful...apart from the mowers and strummers keeping the gardens looking stunning....I guess they have to do it sometime.

Beach vendors! There are quite a few but here is my take on how to deal with them, firstly these are nice people trying to make a living using the skills and resources they have, in my experience they are all very friendly and humble people. We chatted with most of them and made it clear that in our first week that we wouldn't be buying anything and that we would take a look toward the end of our stay, a promise that we honoured, as a result we were left alone other than a friendly hello.

So have some fun with the them, take an interest and have a little haggle, we actually hired a jeep one one day of our stay and payed a local guy Dexter (red glasses) to sit shotgun and show us where to go, he was excellent and we fitted in way more to the day than we ever could have by ourselves, so if he come your way then I highly recommend his services.

As for entertainment, you make your own as there basically is none, so if you are looking for night action then you will have to find it outside the resort.

Will we be back, yes, in a heartbeat

Room Tip: There are no rooms that actually overlook the sea, but if you want a beach view there are rooms near...

Just returned after 10 days all inclusive at Coyaba , hotel was full but surprisingly the beach ( & boy what a fabulous beach ) was never crowded & there was always plenty of very comfortable beach beds available , in fact they were the most comfortable beach beds we have ever encountered. Staff were always polite & helpful, if only at time a little slow, but it is the Caribbean, food pretty good , never disappointed, particularly after discovering the al la carte menus !!. Room ( or suite as it was referred to ), was fine, beds were great, new fabrics were installed whilst we were there & these really brightened up the rooms, A/C was quiet & effective, room cleanliness was excellent. Definitely not a hotel for the younger customer as there was virtually no entertainment & the beach activities were poor. The only real negative aspect , was the complete lack of any insect control, no evidence of any "fogging" & thus areas such as the bars, reception & WC's were places to get regularly bitten, it was a must to wear insect repellent particularly on the legs whilst in those locations, despite having returned home 2 days ago, my legs still look & feel like a battle ground - ERRRRRR!

Room Tip: Stay in second floor rooms, avoids some of the insect life- make good use of insect reppellants in b...
